ENCORE PREMIERES "HINDENBURG: THE LAST FLIGHT" ON MONDAY, MARCH 11TH AT 8PM ET/PT

Golden Globe(R) winner Stacy Keach, Lauren Lee Smith and Maximilian Simonichek Star in The Two-Part Dramatic ENCORE Original Event, Based on the Historic Airship Aviation Disaster

Pasadena, Calif., January 5, 2013 - The U.S. television premiere of the dramatic ENCORE Original Event, "Hindenburg: The Last Flight," will debut Monday, March 11th and Tuesday, March 12th at 8pm et/pt on ENCORE. Based on the 1930s disaster that ended an era of airship aviation, the two-part drama will air as part of ENCORE's "Big Miniseries Showcase," a weekly programming destination of fan favorites and classic titles.

The year was 1937, the world was on the verge of war and the Hindenburg was the pride of powerful Nazi Germany. "Hindenburg - The Last Flight" is a fictional account of one of the most devastating accidents in aviation history, which reveals an insider look into the story before the airships fatal destiny. Maximilian Simonichek ("Die Schöne und das Biest," The Foster Boy) leads an international cast of seasoned actors, as Merten Kroger, a young engineer who led the design of the legendary zeppelin. A man of meager means, he falls in love with a wealthy socialite that is beyond his reach. Lauren Lee Smith ("The Listener," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," Trick 'r Treat) stars as Jennifer van Zandt, the daughter of Edward van Zandt, played by Golden Globe(R) winner Stacy Keach (The Architect, The Bourne Legacy), a wealthy, American oil industrialist with power and privilege. Edward van Zandt's desire to gain riches will stop at nothing, even if it means putting the Hindenburg, its passengers and crew in danger. "Hindenburg: The Last Flight" unveils an awe-inspiring airship, a murderous conspiracy and devastating catastrophe.

One of the most dramatic accidents in the history of aviation, the Hindenburg disaster took place on May 6, 1937 at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in Manchester, New Jersey. Of the 97 crew and passengers aboard the airship, the explosion took the lives of 35 passengers and one grounds man. The Hindenburg disaster marked the end of passenger-carrying airships. While there have been many theories as to why the ship ignited, the true cause of the accident continues to remain officially undetermined.

Filmed in Germany, "Hindenburg: The Last Flight" was written by Johannes W. Betz and is directed by Philipp Kadelbach. The miniseries is produced by Katrin Goetter, Sebastian Werninger, Sascha Schwingel, Jürgen Schuster, with cinematography provided by David Slama and production design from Benedikt Herforth. The series was produced by RTL in association with co-production from TeamWorx Television & Film for BETA Films.

Following the premiere, a "Hindenburg: The Last Flight" marathon will air on Sunday, March 17th beginning at 10am.
